Old Town Disco 15 Square Stern
 
Hello all,

Kicking around ideas on my next fishing canoe.

In spite of it's weight I think this might be a good way to go,and one of the aspects I like is the ability to row the beast. I do have gas and electric motors for my fishing canoes but for some of my more off the beaten path solo adventures this might work.

40" width seems like there should be enough space for rowing but am curious if anyone has done this and your thoughts. Also, is there enough structural integrity so there isn't a ton of flex?

Interested in this or any other ideas out there regarding rowing. Not only is it good way to troll but it is good for my back, and at times I prefer it to paddling.

Thank you in advance!

Thank you aft paddle, that helps out.

I did some digging but you did a much better job than I did!
